Export Files from a Collection

How can I export files from a Collection?

Open a Collection

To open a recently accessed Collection, click File → Open Collection, or Browse... to a Collection that is being newly accessed.

Duplicate One or More Files

Select one or more files to export, then click Duplicate / Move → Duplicate in New Window. Alternatively, to duplicate a single file in a new window, double-click on the file name.

Save a Duplicated File

Each duplicated file will appear in its own window, outside of the Collection. To save a duplicated file, click File → Save As... .

Specify the file name, location, and format, then click Save.

To quickly export a file, simply drag it from the Collection window to a location on your computer.

Alternatively, a subset of the files in a Collection can be exported without first being duplicated in new windows.

Choose to export in a multi-sequence format (fasta, GenBank or EMBL), then click Export.

Save the Exported File/s
